Über diesen Titel:
Say It Is Pentecost completes Aidan Nichols's presentation of the great theological trilogy of Hans Urs von Balthasar. This book offers a comprehensive summary and interpretation of Balthasar's logic. Nichols also considers the way in which the early volume The Truth of the World points forward to the theological aesthetics and dramatics and also how Theo-Logic's concluding volumes pick up the themes of The Glory of the Lord and Theo-Drama. He looks particularly at how Balthasar relates revelation of divine beauty and divine goodness to the unfolding of divine truth. The book concludes with a retrospective review of the trilogy as a whole.
Praise for Aidan Nichols's Introduction to Hans Urs von Balthasar series:
"[T]he definitive commentary on Balthasar's great theological trilogy.... Let no one now complain that they do not know how to find their way through the works of Balthasar. Father Nichols is at hand as a trustworthy guide."--John Saward, author of The Way of the Lamb
"[These volumes] confirm Aidan Nichols as an authoritative guide to the writings of Balthasar."-- Heythrop Journal
"Fr. Nichols's latest book--the first work on Balthasar devoted exclusively to Theo-Logic to be published in any language--should be warmly received. Fr. Nichols not only presents Balthasar's thought systematically but provides numerous examples and other explanatory notes that make it easier to grasp. Say It Is Pentecost is particularly attentive to Balthasar's insistence on constantly relating the unfolding of divine truth to the revelation of beauty and goodness throughout history."-- Crisis
Aidan Nichols, O.P., is prior of the Dominican community at Blackfriars, Cambridge.
"Readers will find that the metaphysics explained by Nichols provides a key to a fuller understanding of the earlier parts of Balthasar's trilogy. This alone makes Say It Is Pentecost essential reading for those seeking a deeper understanding of Balthasar's work as a whole."-- Theology
"While Balthasar's text is fairly demanding, Nicholas manages to render it accessible.... A fine introduction to Balthasar's theology of truth. Nicholas is to be commended for his scholarly yet accessible copmanions to the Esthetics, the Dramatics, and now the Logics."-- Theological Studies
"Like a river in spring fed from countless mountain torrents, Balthasar's trilogy sustains a vigorous prose to the very end, through fifteen volumes! What can be turbulent and disorienting in this adventure, Nichols has transformed into a gentle flowing stream.... According to Nichols' reckoning, Balthasar's 'dogmatics' is due to be an essential thread in the future Catholic tapestry. For this reason, a guide such as Nichols provides an ancillary service that should prove to have a long shelf life."-- Josephinum Journal of Theology
